ANTI-AGING EFFECTS OF L-ARGININE

l-Arginine is one of the most metabolically versatile amino acids. In addition to its role in the synthesis of nitric oxide, l-arginine serves as a precursor for the synthesis of polyamines, proline, glutamate, creatine, agmatine and urea. Several human and experimental animal studies have indicated that exogenous l-arginine intake has multiple beneficial pharmacological effects when taken in doses larger than normal dietary consumption.
Such effects include:

  • Reduction in the risk of vascular and heart diseases,
  • Reduction in erectile dysfunction,
  • Improvement in immune response
  • Inhibition of gastric hyperacidity.
